PCB rebut a story about selection of overage player for U-19 Asia Cup

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has rebutted a story appeared in Express Tribune about selection of overage player for U-19 Asia Cup.

PCB clarified that the age of Shahid Ilyas is correct as mentioned on Pakistan Cricket Board website and his age is within given cut-off dates by ACC and ICC for ACC U-19 Asia Cup 2012 and ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup 2012 respectively.

As per the rule for eligibility of the participating players for both the tournaments, the players who are born on or after September 1st 1992 are eligible to play for the above-mentioned tournaments.
